      Fuse: A Conjuring at the Vancouver Art Gallery

      We dig the vibe of the Vancouver Art Gallery’s upcoming late-night art party, Fuse: A Conjuring, where musicians, sound artists, and more create a world of magic and alchemy. Seek out the rooftop pavilion, where musicians from the electronic label Genero, including DJ Yu Su and Minimal Violence, help build the mood. Elsewhere, relax at one of the velvet-enwrapped pop-up bars created by the Toronto-based sommeliers Grape Witches (shown here); and at the Shadow Bar, immerse yourself in a room of projected shadows and reflections that have been designed by Vancouver-based artist Erika Lövgren Holt.

      Fuse: A Conjuring is at the Vancouver Art Gallery on Friday (November 10).
